  1. U.S. Secret Service Shakes Up Staff Following Drink Controversies

    Agents for the Secret Service’s special operations division have been reassigned in the wake of embarrassing incidents involving drinking. Rules have also been changed barring agents from drinking within 12 hours of reporting for duty, and within 24 hours of a presidential arrival. Three agents were sent home from the Netherlands last month after one was found intoxicated in a hotel before President Obama arrived to meet foreign officials. Two agents were also involved in a car crash earlier this year during a presidential visit in Florida.
